Continuing the theme of work and leisure wear from The Great Depression years, our Maxwell is based on our 1930s half belt pattern, giving it the correct slim, neat fit of that era just around the time when separating zippers were the latest fashion in leather jackets. Sticking with tradition, we've opted for button fastening using hand sewn Corozo buttons , button fastening cuffs and a classic half belt back which was still a fairly new design in 1930.
The Half Belt back design gained rapid popularity with the US public due to the flattering profile and the practicality of a side fastening which could be drawn in to retain warmth in all conditions. Our jacket replicates the character of many utility jackets from the late 1920s rather than replicating any one particular model. The Maxwell has two handwarmer pockets below a jetted breast pocket and is, as standard, lined in a heavy duty polished cotton in a complimentary colour to the outer shell although other options are available.
